How to crochet the Lace stitch

Hi crochet friends! We’re here with a new stitch to learn together – the Lace stitch! It creates openwork stitches giving creations a lace effect and therefore also lightweight. So, the Lace stitch is perfect for making a summer blanket or a shawl and maybe even a bedspread or a hammock!

We’ve teamed the Lace stitch up with one of our summery yarns, Cleopatra. Half cotton, half linen with a colour collection to die for. The cape has been made with the colour Orchid, but you can choose whatever colour takes your fancy.
